This is me & Paul. Let me tell you a little bit about Paul. I met him after “meeting” Zayn in my hotel lobby. I had gone upstairs to get a scrapbook that i made for the boys that held over 100 letters & messages for them. I asked him if he could give it to them & he told me it was really nice & asked if I would want to give it to them. I told him yes. He told me that if I was in the lobby at 10:30 in the morning I would be able to hand it to Zayn personally. I asked him fir a picture, and he replied “WITH ME?!” He doesnt realize that he is PAUL. Anywho. Yesterday morning I got up early and went downstairs ready to hand my book to Zayn. My luck, 2098849 girls show up & they make us move outside. Paul assured me that I would be able to hand Zayn my book. As the boys came outside, they paused & rushed to their car. Paul, leaving me there, helpless. ~At 5:30 or so, I went into One Directions signing. Liam saw my book & looked at me with huge eyes & said “THAT’S A BIG BOOK!!” Preston proceeded to take the book from me, Zayn never saw it. I got to Zayn and handed him a bracelet. That’s when he gave me the BIGGEST, most CARING smile that I have EVER seen. I left the signing & found out that my moms video had not recorded. I cried. Because of that & because Zayn did not see my book. I also cried because I had just met One Direction, the boys I’ve loved for over a year. About 30 minutes later, Paul came outside. My mom went up to him & he remembered, “You’re the one with the book from the hotel! Did you get to hand it to him?” I was obviously too emotional, lol, to answer. So my mom did and explained. Paul looked at me and said Come With Me. He opened the gate & let me through. He took me back into the signing & let me go through the line again. He took my camera & took pictures the whole way through for me. This time I was asked by Liam & Preston if I was okay & I High fived Liam. When I got to Zayn, Paul shouted “Zayn! She’s a huge fan!” Zayn looked at me & said “Hi babe.” with the SECOND MOST CARING SMILE I’VE EVER SEEN. I said hey & Paul shouted at him again, “She made a book for you actually, its really big, so yea” Zayn looked at me with excitement & said “Thank you soooooooo much!” I died & he gave me a high five. Then I got to Niall. He was signing a bunch of CDs & I was waiting to high five him. The man moving the line kept telling me to go. Paul told him I was ok & he called Niall for me. Then Niall have me a high five. I couldn’t believe what had just happened. So now that you know a little bit about Paul. Respect him. Respect him so much. So many people say rude things about him. I can assure you that if anyone wants the best for the boys & their fans, it’s this man. He has such a huge heart. This is Paul & he touched my heart.

School of Seven Bells seem to have a hefty track record at fondling eardrums, but this time they’ve caught on ours too. The previous release, “The Night” sounds like a gentle, upbeat nod to Sarah Records.
With this one, they’re riding the same tracks, adding that “Insert highway timelapse shot here” beat. Don’t gaze at your shoes during this track, you’ll get seasick.
I found this here and thought it was so true i would re-post from a few years ago.
Well, normally, I book my flight and accommodation direct, but for a change, I thought I would give online travel agencies a try and see if I can could get a good late deal, for 7 nights in Kos, during October,…
